BCCM Member CBH Group has announced the appointment of Jimmy Wilson as its new Chief Executive Officer starting late in 2017.

CBH Chairman Wally Newman said “the Board was seeking a candidate that would drive and shape the next phase of development for our growers’ supply chain, ensuring the organisation is fit to match the fiercely competitive environment of international grain trading and foster the culture required to support this.”

Mr Wilson, who most recently headed BHP’s Iron Ore division, will commence with CBH on 14 August 2017 as Chief Executive Officer-elect, formally taking over the role of Chief Executive Officer at the start of CBH’s financial year on 1 October 2017.

Current CEO Dr Crane, who has been in the role for over eight years, will remain with the co-operative to provide support during the transition phase until 30 November 2017.
